Professor of Marine Hydrodynamics - G732

Newcastle University - Marine Science & Technology

The School of Marine Science and Technology (MaST) at Newcastle University is committed to making a significant investment in its research and teaching over the next three years. A new purpose-built research and teaching lab, adjacent to the Blyth Marine Station that supports the school research vessel – Princess Royal, will host upgraded research facilities including the Emerson Cavitation Tunnel, the only commercially operated cavitation tunnel in the UK.

Applications are invited from candidates who have significant experience of leading sizeable research groups, generating significant research income and publishing at an internationally leading 4* level in experimental and theoretical marine hydrodynamics.

Applicants will have an established international reputation and be expected to support and inspire the next generation of researchers in marine technology within MaST. Preference will be given to candidates whose expertise bridges fundamental and applied research in marine hydrodynamics.

Candidates with an established track record of teaching and research in the following areas will be particularly welcomed: Marine Hydrodynamics, Experimental and Theoretical Fluid Mechanics, Marine Coatings, and Wave Energy Devices.

We are the proud recipients of an institutional silver Athena SWAN award demonstrating our achievements and on going commitment to achieving gender equality.
